COLUMBUS - 

During today’s voting session, State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) voted for legislation that permits motorcyclists to apply for a “Breast Cancer Awareness” license plate. The bill passed with unanimous support on the House floor.


Under House Bill 93, owners or lessees of motorcycles can apply to the Registrar of Motor Vehicles for use of the license plate, which is not specifically mentioned in state law.


“The positive momentum that has taken place in the fight against breast cancer will continue with all of us remaining vigilant and committed to combatting breast cancer,” said Rep. Anielski. “Citizens will have an opportunity to financially contribute in the quest of eliminating breast cancer.”


Each purchase of a pink ribbon license plate generates $25 for the Breast Cancer Fund of Ohio, a non-profit organization that helps breast cancer patients find access to affordable, quality treatment. Since its inception in 2005, the plates have generated nearly $650,000 for community organizations that provide services to both women and men.


One-hundred percent of the funds raised by the Breast Cancer Fund of Ohio stays in Ohio. HB 93 simply allows motorcyclists to purchase this particular specialty license plate that passenger vehicle owners can already purchase through the Ohio BMV at www.OPlates.com or through the local Deputy Registrar office.


The bill now heads to the Ohio Senate for further consideration.
